From high profile construction projects to smaller scale developments, the issue of programme delays continues to be a key cause of tension between contracting parties. Consequently, the successful presentation or evaluation of delay claims, including the associated losses or damages payable, often demands a collective analysis of legal, delay and financial aspects.

This briefing will include a review of the modern law in respect of delay claims, including the Court’s current approach for dealing with concurrency clauses in contracts.

Additionally, despite their prevalence, delay claims continue to be poorly drafted. This briefing will review some of the pitfalls associated with delay related claims and experts in the fields of delay and quantum will discuss practical tips and methods for dealing with such claims.
